doesn't get much better than this...
Smooth doesn't begin to describe this compilation! The reason why bossa nova is what it is...but beyond the significance of Jobim's contribution to the jazz genre...the introduction came from a less than likely romance in my early 20s and till this day it evokes more than just memories...the idealistic image of the perfect relationship despite the real story...the ideal "loungey" alternative to the remixed (often overmixed) lounge records...and yet....undeniably classic!
A masterpiece! Full stop!
